Villa Rignana is in the heart of the Chianti and has all the features that a tourist expects from the Tuscan countryside. All around you can see the vineyards, olive groves and woods as well as the landscape, which in October is truly special. The vineyards, designed with geometrical precision, are colored with shades ranging from green to red, the oak forests are still green, but the other trees are tinged with an ocher color. Cypress trees, the true symbol of the Tuscan countryside, are everywhere. Even the access road is unpaved, as it was in the past, and one must be cautious when driving along it, especially with sports cars. The villa was originally a monastery from the 12th century and has been renovated and furnished, combining antique furniture with some unique pieces collected during the owners' travels. The exterior is characterized by a beautiful garden with herbs, endless an infinite variety of roses and a gazebo equipped for outdoor dining; Just above the property there is a swimming pool with infinity edge (8x18 depth 2,5m)(02/04-28/10) while further down in the terraced are there is a tennis court.
